Fake Virus Threats

I happened to see an article on the front page of the paper today about a "new" virus that can infect picture files. Naturally I was skeptical, especially since there was very litttle proof offered as to how it would work. Another tip-off was that the only person quoted was someone from McAfee. Hmm. Well, michael at Slashdot takes them to task for making up virus threats. Basically this virus story is a great big loaf of crap that is regurgitated by newspaper editors all over the country as if it were a real story. Congratulations, McAfee. Your product successfully detects a virus that doesn't exist and does no damage even if it did. Hooray for you.

Detroit Red Wings == Stanley Cup Champions!

My dearly loved Wings did it, eliminating Carolina four games to one with a 3-1 victory. Lord Stanley's hardware is finally back home! Head Coach Scotty Bowman announced that he is retiring so it will be interesting to see what this off-season holds. For now, I'm slipping out of these wet clothes and into a dry martini.
